Senran Kagura: New Link Adds Marie Rose, Honoka From Dead Or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation
Senran Kagura New Link

Honey Parade Games’ latest content update for Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link features two new playable characters you can add to your roster, and it’s none other than two of the more popular characters from Team Ninja’s Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation outing, Honoka and Marie Rose.

The duo will join the other kunoichi from the Senran Kagura series as playable characters, featuring their standard school girl battle costumes and special Xtreme Venus Vacation inspired bikinis. There are also some new costumes made available in the DMM version of Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation as part of the crossover with Senran Kagura.

FreeMMOStation spotted the update from over on the official Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link website, where it was revealed that starting July 18th, the two hotties from Dead or Alive would make their presence known in the mobile turn-based fighting game from Marvelous Entertainment.

At the 8:45 mark in the video above you get your first look at the Honoka and Marie Rose portraits, both featuring the combat costumes and their bikini attire, while at the 9:19 mark we finally get to see what both girls look like in the actual game.

They have some basic fighting combos to take down the enemies with, but most importantly we see how the girls are visually represented as Senran Kagura characters.

What’s interesting is that Marie Rose still pretty much looks the same, save for having much larger eyes. I was a little shocked that they didn’t make her slightly thicker and kept her rather thin.

They did the same for Honoka even though she’s really thick with a bulbous backside and massive boobs. I would have imagined they would have ripened her up with the sort of solid round mounds of merriment like some of the other girls, but they made her surprisingly thin in Senran Kagura: New Link.

In her anime-styled portraits she definitely looks a little more curvaceous and meatier to match her Dead or Alive look, but in the actual game she’s more frail.

Then again, Senran Kagura: New Link was in the news before due to having shrunk the boob sizes of the girls, and covered up some of their more risque bikinis.

Some figured it was due to Google’s increasing restrictions on the Google Play store, as they ramp up censorship of innocuous content like cleavage.

Regardless, Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link definitely has a different art-style compared to the other Senran Kagura games, so all of the girls are less thick and busty, so it just comes with the territory. It probably would have been a lot better to see Honoka make an appearance in one of the main line games, but due to Sony’s censorship policies I don’t think anyone would really care to see that if it means censoring Honoka’s indubitably delectable assets.

Either way, you can check out Honoka and Marie Rose in Shinobi Master Senran Kagura: New Link starting July 18th. To download the app you can head to the Google Play store or the iTunes App Store.
